Great place to stay if you want to be near the ocean. The best service is provided, with a smile from the manager, and his wife. Have stayed here now 3 times, has alway been a great experience. Nice rooms, especially the ones with a balcony, and a hot tub. Tall ceilings. Very comfortable beds, and the rooms are clean.... More

Stayed three nights in a two bed room. Clean and quiet. Had all the amenities that a hotel room should. TV, coffee maker, fridge, microwave, blow dryer, iron, ironing board, vanity mirror, hot water, safe, covered parking, and hot breakfast. Can't beat the location or the price! Literally across the street from the beach and ocean. A minute walk from... More

Very friendly and knowledgable staff. Very nice modern accommodations. Was also please that despite the fact that our room faced the train tracks (as well as the ocean - the train runs along the ocean) that the room was very quiet. Would definitely stay here again.

We enjoyed this hotel for its friendly staff& great locale. The breakfast was varied with an automatic pancake maker!! A short walk to the beach. Room was huge with a separate sitting room. We had an ocean view & several restaurants close by.

This little inn is a jewel. Not only is it across from the PCH fro my he sea, but it is well located,to Laguna beach and Mission Capistrano.

Very pleasant and quaint accommodations at this Inn By The Sea. The staff members were always helpful and courteous. We had a delightful and restful stay. The music in the courtyard was very soothing to the soul as we watched the sunset. And the recommendations for dining were a real treat !

In addition to a great location right across from the beach, this Best Western is more like a wonderful B&B than a motel. Fernando and Amy make you feel like they are personally here for your needs...and they make waffles for you every morning. The hotel is very clean and well maintained. It is well appointed with lovely sitting patios... More

Was in town for my 20th high school reunion, and wanted to stay near the beach. This hotel met all our expectations. We got a Ocean View room, which actually had an ocean view. We could actually hear the surf last night!
